Some News; and a Hiatus

Don’t worry, the news is good: after 11 great years, I’m leaving Siena College this summer to begin a new job at the University of Kentucky. My wife (a US historian) and I will become associate professors in the history department there this August. I am especially pleased to have as new colleagues two other scholars of the early modern Iberian world, Gretchen Starr-LeBeau and Erik Myrup.

And because of all the moving – my family will spend over a month between houses – I need to take a break from Early Modern Spanish History Notes. There will be no new posts, or at least only a few sporadic posts, until mid- or late August. But don’t worry, EM Spanish History Notes will come back at full force as soon as I’m settled in at my new institutional address!

  6. Congrats! Heard this news a few months ago from one of your colleagues who was very excited to share it. Welcome to the Southeast. Maybe we can get you down to Knoxville for a visit. Lots of great early modern things going on down here.
